Three Things Bravely Default Does Better Than Final Fantasy XIII

18d ago ... It’s almost a unanimously agreed-upon fact that Final Fantasy XIII is a terrible, terrible byproduct of a once-shining corporation now consumed with greed. It is because of this very game that many Final Fantasy loyalists thought Square Enix bit the dust. But in February of 2014, something amazing happened: The JRPG giant brought to life a fantastical masterpiece of epic proportions. This game,...

Remastered Titles and The Gamers They Anger

63d ago ... With the announcement of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Rayman: Legends for next gen systems, gamers everywhere chose sides and voiced their opinions. Either glad titles like this, that they missed last gen, were being remastered and rereleased... or angry that developers weren't spending their time on new next gen games. At the beginning of every consoles life, comes a dry period. Wher...

What I would do as CEO of Nintendo.

86d ago ... Note: This isnt all i would do, these are just 13 descision within the realm of possibility that could help Nintendo in its struggle with the Wii U. What i do if i was CEO of Nintendo. 1. Put Xenoblade Chronicles on the eshop for $29.99, this would build hype for X as well as attract all the people not willing to pay 70 bucks for it at GameStop. 2. Fund a Resident Evil 2 remake a la the...

Prizes at the Speed of Internet

184d ago ... In the past year and more recently in the past few months we at HAVA were trying a couple different prize payment solutions. I don't think it's any big secret (especially to the winners) that none of them was as fast as we would like. The good news is we just changed things up again and September prizes are already paying out. Users that chose PayPal have already had their prizes issued, an...

Under the Knife: Broken Games and Reviews

212d ago ... By now I'm sure most of you (particularly the PC crowd) have seen the fissure that has split the Total War gaming community in two. For those of you not in the know, Total War: Rome II has just been released and it has been stirring a lot of controversy. Not only was this game released in deplorable condition, but big name publications are praising it as a fantastic real-time strategy game that...

The Hidden Problem with Digital Gaming, Next-Gen and Beyond

214d ago ... This is my very first blog so forgive me if I sound a little naive. I wanted to discuss this because of the certain issue I'm sure a lot of you have had to deal with today. I just finished downloading a little game called Grand Theft Auto V on my PS3, which took me approximately 15 hours to download. 15 HOURS, and it is still currently installing and has been for about 20 mins now. I am very gl...

Sega, please don't half-ass your localization like this

215d ago ... And this goes to pretty much any company being stingy with localization. Three weeks ago, one of the best console music games that doesn't involve plastic instruments finally landed stateside. You probably don't know because Sega hasn't done anything to tell people. It's called "Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F," The FIFTH game in a series based on the digital singers, "vocaloids." You want a qu...

Gaming Juggernauts Are Finally Listening

228d ago ... Yes ladies and gentlemen, the big, brash companies that think they can dictate to gamers what they want with little regard to anything else have finally learnt they can't. I'm not just talking about the E3 backlash that Microsoft received, but it also seems it has had a knock on effect with other companies reacting too. Customer service economy Believe it or not, customers have a bigger...

The Watchlist: Teslagrad

233d ago ... "Teslagrade is a 2D puzzle-platformer, where you play as a young lad who suddenly finds himself embroiled in an ancient conflict that will shake the foundations of his enture existence, and bring a gruesome truth to light." Teslagrad first caught my eye while browsing Steam Greenlight and the recent demo affirmed those initial impressions. Teslagrad is shaping up to be something special. Set...

Kingdom Hearts III: What Do You Want To See?

278d ago ... I'm still fanboying over the reveal of Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III. Today, I just want to talk about Kingdom Hearts III. Both KH3 and FF15 will be released on the PS4 and XB1 (I'm getting it on PS4). So I want to talk about story and gameplay primarily. Spoiler alert if you don't know what happens in Birth By Sleep and Dream Drop Distance! Story and link to the trailer: http://w...

Why I'm Glad the Xbox One Has It's Features and Problems

306d ago ... The Xbox One was announced back in May, and not many people were impressed. In fact, Microsoft had to go as far as to add fake applause to their presentation. The Xbox One has so many restrictions and silly features that: I'm actually glad they're doing it all. Now before you think to yourself "he's for the Xbox. Boo him", I'm not. I've yet to explain myself, so here goes. There are A LOT...

Hardware each console should/could have used

331d ago ... Now that the fat lady has sang her final tune, we can now relax all the rumors regarding what each console manufacturer is going to use to power their next-gen systems. While there is still a bit of ambiguity in some of the next-gen consoles (Wii U and to a lesser extent Xbox One) we pretty much know exactly what these new machines will be capable of, so let's get into some hard facts. As f...

What if it's/they're more powerful?

334d ago ... Well the Nextbox will be revealed tomorrow ladies and gentlemen and the rumors are starting to take off like a rocket. The biggest rumor and question is what if it's more powerful than the PS4? I say great, more power is always a good thing, but will that hurt Sony? No, not really. It'll give fans bragging rights for the first year or two, but after that it's back to which console has t...

Reinventing the Past: The Guardian Legend.

341d ago ... Everyone has an old game from their childhood that they want to see brought back to life. Everyone has a personal favorite from circa 1989 (ish) through 1995. Mostly Nintendo consoles. Strictly speaking, not for 90's babies. A special place for those that were born in Circa 1980's, and played atari when their parents weren't home, when they played Nintendo at age five. Games have evolved...
